Daredevil #33, Regular Show #6, The Fifth Beatle HC + Wonder Woman #25
I really enjoyed Daredevil #32 and since it’s been announced the title is headed for cancellation soon– I think I’m going to ride it out till the end. I’ve read issues of Mark Waid’s run here and there– and none have disappointed me. Honestly– the main reason why I didn’t buy the book on a regular basis? Because I don’t care to support Marvel Comics in any way (for multiple reasons). But I’ll make an exception for the remainder of Waid’s Daredevil. (Having Chris Samnee on art helps a hell of a lot, too.)
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a copy of the first issue of Regular Show – Skips for my girlfriend. Being a fan of the show, I read it and found the comic did a great job of capturing the look and humor of the show. That means I’ll be giving the main Regular Show title a buy this week. Pickings are quite slim this Wednesday, and I’d rather buy this comic over almost everything else coming out this week.
I’m not one to buy Original Graphic Novels (or graphic novels in general), but a comic about The Beatles and their manager Brian Epstein (with art by Andrew Robinson and Kyle Baker) is just begging to be bought. Dark Horse has an 8 page preview of The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story on their website and a liked what I read. Though the book costs a bit under 20 bucks, I feel this may be worth the money.
I’m almost all caught up with my new comic reading backlog. One of the titles I’m now up to date with is Brian Azzarello’s Wonder Woman. The story really is taking its sweet time be told (sometimes a bit too slow for my liking) but this is the best Wonder Woman has been since Greg Rucka’s run– so I’ll give the title a bit of slack. Having said that, a little less decompression would be very welcomed.
